I don't know of any hunters who use the hooves, but if you go through a processor they generally have hide buyers, and though I don't hunt, I'm always happy to help friends & neighbors consume excess venison.

I have always thought that there should be a knife/spear/pointy stick season and a wrestling season for deer, if they're going to have muzzle loader and bow season, why not?

Sorry about the anonymous.

Actually I think I remember someone taking a deer with an atlatl a few years ago. I might actually like that. It'd take a couple of years to get good enough at it to try, I'd guess.

Neat, I've learned a new word!

...and you won't find very many words that are more fun to say. Now to figure out a way to bring it up in conversation...

I've seen hooves used as hat racks, bones associated with the area as handles, they can be used to make rattles or even as stamps to make deer tracks with. My point being, while I'm not all that against hunting, I do think -every- effort needs to be made to use every part of every animal killed -- call me crazy.

Why? Do you expect that to be done with the cows or pigs that we eat?

I'm just curious. I don't agree with hunting for sport or trophies, but as long as the meat feeds people, that seems sufficient to me.

Yes, I expect/hope it's done with cows/pigs/chickens that are slaughtered for food.

I just believe we need to respect nature as much as we can and if we're to kill something, we need to make as much use of it as possible. I understand this can't -always- be done, but it's something I like to see.

Just eating the meat is sufficient, I guess -- but I still hope more than just the meat can get used. Many farms go to really huge lengths to use parts of the animals they don't end up selling, so that they can get the most out of it, which I think is good. :)
